    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good environment with good benefits.

    Cons

    Bad salary, many processes to go through. Management doesn't care about employees. Employees resign by the dozens while management careless about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    come down from the ivory tower and listen to the individual contributors. Managers are the least guys to leave as they have super easy jobs.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    While Oracle is new to the CX space and still has some challenges to overcome, they are committed to being the best in the space. You get to be around some great products and if you can do well at Oracle its one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    You are a little fish in an ENORMOUS pond. There are people at Oracle who feast, and they are those who are starving and unfortunately that doesn't always have to do with skill, it has to do with luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more balanced patches.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Variety of challenges, great management, flexibility as most employees are at-home workers, solid company and solutions

    Cons

    More about the work-at-home than the company, sometimes remote working reduces collaboration which leads to longer solutions at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what will drive the bottom line, not internal reporting and account planning to justify way too many levels of internal management.

    Current Employee - Systems Administrator in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Systems Administrator in New York, NY

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule
    Opportunities for internal training abound
    Stable, the company isn't going anywhere
    Good vacation and sick leave, and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    If you come in from an acquisition, the culture shock can be significant (and it's sink or swim)
    In spite of internal training opportunities, raises and promotions are difficult to come by
    'Working from home' or working remotely not as institutionalized as it should be, so some departments are hard to communicate with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has no interest in advice from a mid-level systems administrator. Shut up, do the work, and don't make waves. This is a MASSIVE company, and you're a cog in the wheel that is Oracle - which can be a good thing if you're looking to coast through your work week, but taking initiative and going beyond tends to be thanked with a pat on the back, and not a raise or promotion. Your experience will largely depend on your direct manager and your department.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with various types of software, working with good people and MOST people are very easy to work with and are happy to help with about anything. There is tons of knowledge at Oracle, both in the brains of the employees and many different resources that is all available to employees. Vacation time is about par with other companies, casual dress pretty much every day, and training available at your desk or in a classroom setting is available. Perks from dress code to cafes and restaurant type dining in the lobby of each building (and each is a different cuisine,) cell phone discounts, as well as other personal purchase discounts. Finally, you are mostly left alone do your work. I have not yet had a micro-manager. and Oracle is the big fish. No one is going to challenge Oracle right now.

    Cons

    A large majority of our co-workers are in India, which makes meeting times either very early US time (late India time) or very late US time (very early India time. Many processes can be and should be automated, and very little top down information (executive management down to us where the rubber hits the road, so to speak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More information on annual benefits earlier (maybe in May we can be told that this and that annual benefits will happen (not for all of course) and this and that will not happen this year. Also, I hope the executive management continues with the method they are using to handle and spend money wisely. Lastly, the market is moving and it's time to award those that you want to stick around.
